Honeywell's 2012 UniSim Student Competition Winner Announced at EMEA Users Conference
Honeywell announced the winner of its fifth annual student competition during it EMEA Users Conference in Istanbul, Turkey. The competition is dedicated to the encouragement of design and innovation in the process industry. The 2012 competition focused on the use of Honeywell's dynamic process simulation technology, UniSim Design, and the winner was Davide Bocciardo from the University of Edinburgh, for his entry "Customising UniSim Design: membrane separation and its application to carbon capture."
As winner of the 2012 competition, Bocciardo attended the full three-day conference and had the opportunity to present his winning ideas to all of Honeywell's EMEA customers and partners. In addition, Bocciardo's professor and project advisor; Stefano Brandani, was able to choose a training course for himself or a colleague at his nearest Honeywell world-class automation college.
Bocciardo's winning entry focused on the use of UniSim-based simulation to model membrane separation applied to the post-combustion capture of carbon dioxide, as an alternative to the conventional method of solvent-based capture.
